This was my second trip with Ed Robinson and it turned out as great as the
first trip.  There were numerous turtle encounters, eels, and frogfish most
every day.  It was also very enjoyable to listen to the whale songs on the
first few days of diving.  Molokini Crater was dived a lot as per divers'
requests and it never got boring whether inside the crater, on the outer
rim, or on the backside of Molokini.  We also had a number of manta

Nudibranchs were abundant as were the beautiful butterflyfish, angelfish,
squirrelfish, hunting jacks, bannerfish, moorish idols, sergeant majors,
and the array of surgeonfish found in the Hawaiian Islands.  Ed's crew was
fabulous at finding the more rare critters like the flame angelfish,
harlequin shrimp, decoy scorpionfish, spanish dancer, and a juvenile milky

Ed has a new type of diving he calls his "Adventure X" trip where
more experienced divers are allowed to totally dive their own profiles
whether with a buddy or solo.  Some of these dives can also be at deeper
sites where many operators don't visit.

When I had a regulator malfunction, Ed's crew had an extra one onboard and
mine was switched out between dives so that I'd not lose any dives.  His
crews are very knowledgeable about the dive sites as well as the marine
life.  They are also very reef conscious.  I"ll surely return to dive
with Ed Robinson again.
